Informative and well presented, makes up for modest stock of artifacts. Good for a half hour visit, laid out to accommodate folks with mobility challenges.

The information provided gives a very good overview of Roman lifestyles, customs and house functions. Doing so in a place that matches this and with some of the original wall, mosaics, statues, etc. make is a special experience.
